Poetic Beats is a monthly show containing an eclectic mix of music, poetry and a focus on the vibrant art scene taking place in Thame. Haddenham and surrounding villages. Each month we will feature poetry ranging from the classics to poems produced by local poets.

There will also be interviews with poets, writers and anyone who is involved in the creative space. If you are a poet, writer or artist and would like to participate in Poetic Beats then please get in touch with Red Kite Radio.

Maybe you would like your favourite poem, or a piece of your own poetry read on air, or would like to talk about your writing or art.  Additionally, if you have an event linked to poetry, writing or creative arts happening in the Red Kite Radio area and would like it featured then please get in touch.
